A dance show that explains a global issue to kids: child labour.

Our protagonists spend their days working in the fields without rest, planting one seed after another for hours and in the hot sun. But, to bear it, the two girls have turned their work into a game, because… it’s impossible to forbid a child from playing.

Our purpose is to show and share our way of understanding art as a means of stimulating the imagination through dance, poetics and visual beauty. In this piece, straddling contemporary dance, audiovisual and visual arts, we present two girls who are forced to work every day in extremely harsh conditions. They do, however, manage to survive day after day showing an enormous capacity for resilience. Their inner world, this imaginary universe they share and where they take refuge, allows them to deal with suffering and injustice. Together, they find a way to flee through their imagination. And in their games, we see reflected their deepest dreams and longings for a home and a family.
With this production we celebrate our fifteen years as a company, and, in some way, it is imbued with the spirit of all our previous creations. A piece as small and delicate as a seed.

Joan Santacreu, director of the show.
